I admit that too often, I get so self-absorbed I think the entire world revolves around me, but in this case, I can only assume "certain males" refers to me, since the only other male speaking in this thread is Charlie, who is mostly positive in his comments about Judith Butler.

I am not acting out. I know what acting out is, I've done it many times. This isn't it.

Whatever it is I am doing, it has nothing to do with "female sexuality." In my comments, I complained about Judith Butler's writing style and stuck up for the writing of Stephanie Zacharek, while also citing Martha Nussbaum's critique of Butler. How this becomes "certain males acting out around issues involving female sexuality" is beyond me. And the suggestion that I am somehow driven to act out because Judith Butler is a lesbian is nonsense, although I admit I am less than impressed that she is a star scholar.
